Here & Now is a multidisciplinary collection of unconventional writers, visual artists, and performers seeking to create an ephemeral artistic experience in reaction to the hyper-documentation of modern social life.
After wildly successful performances in 2011 and 2012, Here & Now returns on March 10th to Gallery 263 in Cambridge, MA.
This year the theme is "Obsolete."
Four writers will read new pieces from type-written pages with no additional hard or soft copies. Other acts will include burlesque, cabaret, academic lecture, and visual art. Once the performances are complete, the writers' pieces will be ritualistically burned along with all materials from the other acts.
No cameras, recording devices, or other forms of documentation will be allowed in the space.
By the end of the night, the artists will render a timely manifestation of the phrase, “One night only.”
